On Sunday Morning he notified his team that he will no longer be coaching. Feldman says that Jones just informed his staff of the news.

The Vols capitalized on the ensuing drive as McBride rushed for 16 yards on three carries and completed six of nine passes, including a 19-yard touchdown throw to senior tight end Ethan Wolf to tie the game up, 17-17. It was also the third time the Vols were routed this season, as they lost to the Georgia Bulldogs by a score of 41-0 back on September 30 and then were destroyed by the Alabama Crimson Tide, 45-7, on October 21.

Ever since back-to-back home losses to Georgia and SC earlier this season, it has seemed likely that Tennessee would move in a different direction at the end of the year.

Jones was reportedly given the opportunity to coach those final two games but declined.

Tennessee's regular-season defeat at Vandy also dashed the chance for the school to go to its first Sugar Bowl in 25 years.

Tennessee (4-6, 0-6 SEC) now holds a 2-4 all-time record against Missouri (5-5, 2-4 SEC), including a 1-2 record in Columbia.

The Volunteers then put together back-to-back nine-win seasons in 2015 and 2016 and went into past year ranked ninth. With Jones out, Tennessee will likely go through the rest of the year with an interim head coach before trying to find a permanent solution.
